about the venue

Famed as the world's most beautiful castle, Leeds Castle near Maidstone in Kent makes the perfect setting for cinema under the stars.  

A castle has been on the site since 1119 - in the 13th Century it came into the hands of Edward I and in the 16th Century, Henry VIII used it as a residence for his first wife, Catherine of Aragon.  

It's a truly magical setting and one that lends itself perfectly to open air cinema.


The Luna Bar with Estrella will be onsite serving a full selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including Estrella beer, prosecco, a selection of Casillero del Diablo wines, spirits and soft drinks. Hot drinks will also be available at the bar.

Food will be available from our gourmet partners on-site. Please see our food & drink page for more details.
